“Responsive service, great value and excellent position”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2010

Arrived very early in the morning and staff found a room within an hour which was not expected on our part but much appreciated. They also allowed us an extension of check out time even though they were fully booked. Lale and the team were very helpful and friendly throughout our stay of about 14 days. Breakfast provided ample choice and good quality in a breakfast area with fascinating foundation and wall remnants of an ancient palace. Room was spacious by european standards, clean and comfortable. The location is conveniant to transport and situated very close to many of the old city sights and sites, ACRA provided a small hotel experience which was good value for money and nicely presented with a pensione feel about it. If you want an upmarket 24 hour room service with spa type hotel, obviously you will go elsewhere. But if you want honest, helpful, friendly service from all staff, comfortable surroundings and fantastic location then this place would be hard to beat.

Yes, it's true.All that those others before me have written is true.
It's the perfect location to discover the Sultan Ahmet part of the city.
Located in a quiet street, with nice places to eat within a "had once glass of wine to many" walking distance.
And if you might be overwhelmed by the city hussle: it takes a 5 minute stroll to get to the Marmara seaside.
The very dedicated staff handles all of your wishes/questions/needs in a professional way, larded with a human touch. Thanks to Hassan (forgot the rest of the staff's names) for a wonderfull stay in amazing Istanbul

We had a most wonderful time in Istanbul and in central Turkey. The Acra staff were charming and attended to all our needs and this wasn't just during our stay . Oslem in particular was wonderful with her organisation for our central Turkey excursion. Nothing slipped her attention and the excursion ran like clock work.
The Acra staff really treat you like a long last family member. Nothing was too much trouble. Everyone greets you with a smile and great charm.

Hasan deserves all the praise he receives and more. What a striking ambassador for the hotel and for Istanbul. The hotel is located in a prime position with easy access to all major attractions. It was very good value for money and I look forward to visiting there again.

This is the best choice I have ever made! It`s a beautiful hotel situated in proximity of the most important tourist attractions in Istanbul! I spent here 4 nights and it was absolutely great from all points of view: the hotel itself, the staff, the service everything. I was delighted that one of the staff, a boy called Hasan welcomed us in a way that Istanbul felt like home. He was very nice to give us important tips on how to spend the best holiday in Istanbul! This will surely be our choice the next time we come to Istanbul!
